Millionaire was closed to dump his lottery winning ticket
An eastern states man has become the luckiest of all Lotto winners, becoming an instant millionaire after finding his unregistered winning ticket while cleaning his car on the weekend – a year after his winning numbers were drawn.
“I was cleaning rubbish out of my car on the weekend and thought it was time to put new cartons in the bottom of all my bags as they were starting to get torn and I got quite a surprise!
“I’m glad I didn’t just get the old bags and take them to the dump!
“I’ve done some pretty stupid things in my time!”
After finding the ticket, the man checked it online and discovered he had become a millionaire a year ago.
“I thought I’d been pretty stupid. I was thinking ’Wow! I could’ve thrown this out!’. It got very close,” he said.
“So I’m not worried that I could have had the money a year ago – at least I’ve got it now. It might have remained anonymous until the year 3900!
